nation's history, it was the states rather than federal government that controlled access to religious worship, the rights of religious organizations and so on. and in the early decades of the 20th century, that began to shift as the supreme court applied the national constitutional establishment and free exercise clauses of the first amendment against the states sort of centralizing debates about religion. >> host: but if the states had the control, we had it written into our constitution, freedom of religion. >> guest: we did, indeed. but the first amendment begins "congress shall enact no law." so it was addressed only to the national government. >> host: were there restrictions by different states on religion? >> guest: oh, yes, there were. several states had religious establishments. most states limited the amount of property a religious organization could own. some taxed religious property. others banned given groups' practices. i'm thinking, for example, eventually various states in the southwest banning polygamy, for example. >> host: so when it came to massachusetts, talk abou

overseeing the pre- trial hearing of alleged army whistleblower bradley manning has ruled the government must prove manning wanted to aid the enemy as prosecutors have alleged. on wednesday, colonel denise lind told prosecutors to prove that manning knew or should have known the documents he's accused of passing to wikileaks would end up being seen by members of al qaeda. lind also granted a defense request to present evidence that manning carefully selected documents he knew would not harm the united states. manning has previously offered to plead guilty to releasing documents if the government drops its most serious charges, including aiding the enemy. also on wednesday, defense attorneys tried to argue for the case's dismissal on the grounds manning has been denied the right to a speedy trial. by the time his trial begins in june, manning will have been in detention for 1101 days, nearly 10 times the maximum allowed by military rules between arrest and trial. a group of foreign and algerian workers have been taken hostage in algeria in what their kidnappers call retaliation for the french
that the president was going to slow down on some government initiatives, think again. we will get into the details in the second. here is how it was received across the globe. u.s. futures are up about 19 points. similar gains in the s&p 500 and nasdaq. the nasdaq. the first two are already at five year highs. the nasdaq is a long way from that. it has more to do with their currency, the nikkei is up. less to do with the inauguration of barack obama today. but perhaps it was something that would get in the way of some of the good economic fortunes they see downwind. the markets little dissuaded by anything that happened today. despite concerns that republicans feel that they are going to get the short of the stick -- short end of the stick from the president. chuck schumer is the latest essay, to say, as you know, if it comes to another budget that will be stressful, republicans may not like it, but they will have to deal with it. i will have more on the attitude in the approach of the president. i didn't see anything shocking or the president. he is kind of echoing what he already has said. maybe
ourselves has been diminished by the blockade. the united states government has looked into the blockade, in january 2011, and formally found there was no lawful reason to erect a u.s. financial embargo against wikileaks. what has happened here -- and this came out in the commission documents we published yesterday -- senator lieberman and congressman peter king pressured at the very least mastercard and amazon, perhaps others, including visa, to direct and extrajudicial blockade that they were not able to successfully direct through the legislature or through a formal and the district of process. >> turning to your new book, those around the world who have been amazed that your ability to advocate transparency in government and in the corporate world through the internet might be surprised that in your book you say that the internet is a danger to human civilization. explain why. >> human civilization has merged with the internet. every society has gone onto the internet. communication between all of us as individuals as well as businesses, economic transfers, and even internal and exte
. they are the branch of government to preserve this form of government. there is something very reassuring about this notion that every four years, whether it is your candidate or your opponent, they will be gone after a certain length of time, and that is the celebration of the in and out of the presidency that makes it so important. we can date our collection to these brass buttons that were made for george washington's first inauguration in new york city. they are a simple brass disk, often with the letters g w on them, and you could pin it to your close or sell it on. it demonstrates the relationship between the presidency and the citizenry, which is really the key, and really when inaugurations are part of. there are these wonderful smash- ups -- part coronation, part celebration of american democracy. that relationship is really key. they are also celebrations of national unity, and there is a little bit of partisan gloating. one of our great treasures is this flag from thomas jefferson's first inauguration in 1800. you can see, looking at this banner, what it says -- the eagle holds these
supporter of the royal government and was driven out of town. >> on the other side of that, with now is so a different source of media we can to fact check them how often direct lies in order to gain support or to turn people directly to one side or the other? >> well, i mean, you are definitely finding exaggerations, whether it was drastic or not, what i was interested in finding was that a lot of newspaper accounts came with disclaimers pics of the publishers, these printers very much valued reliable sources. and if the source was questionable, they would frequently print that with the article from some sort of disclaimer. >> i remember there was a letter that was published after the battle of lexington and concord that talks about the british soldiers coming to the parsonage in lexington and rampaging through and killing the barnyard animals. that never happened. there's a letter about the battle of bunker hill that says that general howe, as soon as the soldiers reached charlestown can seldom try tried to desert and run away, and he had to them strung up immediately on greasy. that did
of government. a set of principles emerged that there is not universal agreement on, but overwhelming consensus and they were the foundation of the recommendations. if you'll permit and another 10 to 12 minutes, i want to lay out what they are from the perspective of the president. the first foundational principle is there is a second amendment. the president and i support the second amendment that comes with the right of law-abiding responsible citizen to own guns, gives a further protection as well as recreation. the second foundational principle, certain people in society should not and legally can be disqualified from being able to own a gun because they are unstable or they are dangerous. they are not the citizens that in fact the vast majority of gun owners comprise. three, we should make common sense judgment about keeping dangerous weapons off our streets. clearly within the purview of the government at the same time recognizing, honoring them being compliant with the second amendment. and for, this isn't just about guns. it is about the coursing of our culture. the coursing of our cult
kathy rogers told "political" i think it is possible we would shut down the government to make sure that president obama understands that we're serious. well, i guess that would do it. we always talk about whether or not we're going to kick the can down the road. i think the mood is that we have come to the end of the road. what road? and republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee said this to msnbc's chris jansing. let me ask you if you're willing to shut the government down? >> we're looking at all the options, there is the option of government shutdown, the option of raising the debt ceiling in short-term increments. i think there is a way to avoid default if it requires shutting down portions of the government. let's look at that. >> and in his press conference, president obama quoted speaker john boehner from 2011. >> that would be a financial disaster, not only for our country but for the worldwide economy. i don't think it is a question that is even on the table. >> and the last question of his press conference, the president was asked if he may be more successful
in government today. marcia mcnutt has worked with me for many, many occasions, most notably during the oil spill. you're looking at one of the fine leaders that worked with the government to make decisions matter and make the difficult decisions. i'm proud to work with her during the oil spill and i'm proud to introduce her now. marcia? >> thank you. the gulf coast is under threats and in particular, i want to speak of those that impact life and property. it is a deadly combination of loss of natural protection, rising seas from global warming, increasing intensity and number of storms, and more people and critical infrastructure that lies in the coastal zone in the path of those storms. there's no doubt but the coastal zone is a desirable but it is a dangerous place to live and it is getting more dangerous all the time. so what is the solution? well, the good news is that research can help. let me provide you with an analogy. we know that fault zones are dangerous places to live but thanks to science we have increased more than two orders of nag any attitude the safety of living in earthq
to gather dust on the shelf, of some agency, in government, a set of principles emerged, that there was not universal agreement on, but overall whelming consensus on, and they were the foundation of the recommendations. if you'll permit me about another 10-12 minutes, i want to lay out to you what they are from the perspective of the president and me. the first foundational principle is, there is a second amendment. the president and i support the second amendment. and it comes with the right of law-abiding, responsible citizens to own guns. use it for their protection as well as for recreation. the second foundational principle, certain people in society should not, and legally can be disqualified from, being able to own a gun because they are unstable or they are dangerous. they are not the citizens that in fact the vast majority of gun owners x-ray. -- owners comprise. three, we should make commonsense judgments about keeping dangerous weapons off our streets. clearly within the purview of the government, at the same time recognizing, honoring, and being compliant wit
like that. they keep it for one reason only -- so they can protect themselves against the government. that's what it's all about. host: "the new york times" editorial today weighing in saying the white house has a rare chance to propose and pushed through an agenda for public safety. the assault weapon ban should be renewed and tightened with a special emphasis on those that hold more than 10 rounds. offered by our chaplain, father conroy. chaplain conroy: let us pray. god of the universe, we give us thanks for giving us another day. the people's house gathers today and celebrates in its gathering the wonder of our constitutional form of government. our nation has once again achieved something so often lacking in our world history, the peaceful transition of democratic government. the major change of party in control did not take place, it is still the american experience that our streets are peaceful and winners and losers of elections move on with their lives of dignity. we thank you again for the inspiration of our nation's founders and the legacy they left us with. may the member
that the government should take any action necessary as quote, as long as it saves even one life. now, the third, when barack obama read from the letters of children, it reminded me of the 1980's, remember the presidential debate, jimmy carter revealed to us, he had talked to his 12-year-old daughter, amy, about nuclear proliferation. now, children, they do have wonderful virtues, but children's ability to understand the intricacies of things like nuclear proliferation, and in this case, the link between guns and violent crime, it's not high among them. this is a play for our emotions and we need to see that as such and lastly during his speech today the issue of gun control shouldn't be a divisive one. wait a minute, for obama to sermonize about the problems of divisiveness, like john edwards sermonizing to us about the problems of, well, infidelity. plain hypocritical. and former fox advisor contributor, karl rove. >> good to be back. >> sean: first of all, i'm watching obama, you're watching obama. different guy in the second term? >> more confrontational, more aggressive, more focused on the polit
implementation of obama care next year. which is one of the themes i told you about last week, the government made me do it theme. the staffing companies are in flago right now. and i think they'll stay that way for the rest of the year. i think in part because of the affordable care act. they are ultrasensitive to changes in the labor market. temporary employment is more cyclical than regular labor market. first to be hired when the economy comes back. and coming back is exactly what the economy is doing right now. just today we saw the jobless claims drop to the lowest level in five years. >> house ofre. >> full-time employment up 1.4% in 2012, the total number of temporary employees increased by 6.2%. that rapid growth is expected to continue in 2013. the street is looking for 5% growth in temporary employment this year. however, i think that number could ultimately end up being conservative thanks to the affordable care act. aka obama care. once that goes into affect in 2014, companies that employ more than 50 full-time workers will need to provide employees with expensive health care cov
raising the debt ceiling gives the government the ability to pay its existing bills. it doesn't create new deficit spending. so not raising the debt ceiling is sort of like a family that's trying to improve its credit rating. families that say, i know how we can save money, we won't pay her credit card bills. it was the sole solution to the debt ceiling in august of 2011 in the u.s. downgraded last time. so all these issues are important and it's very important that congress take necessary action to raise the debt ceiling to avoid a situation where government doesn't pay its bills. >> a number of people have expressed concern about how much of the challenges actually were addressed in a deal, it certainly went part way, but leaves a number of issues still on the table. would you care to raise that as an additional fiscal cliff that is facing us? would you think that it's not as concerning as it was when you raise that term initially? >> as i said the fiscal cliff, if it is allowed to take place, it probably would have traded a recession this year. a good bit of that has been a
, expansive government." the chairwoman of the house republican conference said "the president's out word words must be matched with actions regarding the country's fiscal health," suggesting a gulf between the two." good morning, your thoughts on the inaugural address? caller: i thought that it was wonderful. i thought that the speech was very insightful. the keylieve that's words were we the people. together we will do all the things we set out to do. host: he talked about preserving medicare, social security. he talked about climate change, equal rights for gay couples and women. is that your priority list? caller: maybe not in that order, but the president has a hard job and congress has got to work together with him. i believe that we have good republicans. many people in the country believed in the position of the president and that the congress will go along, eventually. host: all right, douglas. your priority list? top five? top three? caller code jobs, education, and for the end of the war. -- caller: jobs, education, for the war to end. host: let's hear the president speaking on

on the part of gun owners that somehow the federal government's about to take all your guns away. and you know, that there's probably an economic element to that. it obviously is good for business. >> megyn: chris stirewalt is our fox news digital editor and host of power play live. and since he's made those remarks, there's been considerable pushback from gun rights supporters, saying he just doesn't get it. it's not that anybody has scared them into otherwise, that believing that something is going to happen that's not going to happen. they're listening to the debate right now on capitol hill and they're concerned about their second amendment rights based on what they're hearing directly from the president and his surrogates. the president made it clear he'd like to see an assault weapons ban put back in place. >> it goes beyond that, he's actually impugning the motive of the other side of this debate. and if we thought a month ago in the immediate wake of the shootings in connecticut that we-- the window was open for some sort of bipartisan or this isn't really a partisan issue, but this is
elected in the house, in particular, we don't believe in governance. not totally pessimistic. the way to go we've seen in the last three major issues in the house, a split within the republican party where main stream conservatives of the bob dole variety have aligned with the majority of democrats. they've been opposed by a majority of republicans in the house, but not of the whole house and speaker boehner, to his credit, has been allowing a coalition to come together and i hope what happens is that the main stream conservativism of the republican party continue to fight back. >> he hopes the republican party remains divided so democrats can get something done. >> no, i hope the conservatives in the republican party assert themselves the way they have in the last three votes and work with us and marginalize their eextreme wing. >> i have to tell you. >> i think that's the same thing. >> i disagree a little bit with congressman. i happen to be one of the great stream republicans which comes from the main state of ohio which is the epicenter of the universe. secondly, mrs. pelosi beco
the money? sources tell abc news, the federal government is likely to join a whistle-blower lawsuit against armstrong this week, seeking to recoup millions of dollars paid to sponsor his cycling teams. it would be the costliest case against lance armstrong by far. and his biggest headache going forward. this morning, sources say the lying is over. after a decade of denials -- >> i have never doped. >> reporter: -- even lawsuits, and vicious attacks against his detractors -- >> i've never taken performance-enhancing drugs. >> reporter: -- sources tell abc news that lance armstrong now admits he really was on more than just his bike. and this morning, oprah's revealing new details about her interview. >> yes, think the entire interview was difficult. i would say he did not come clean in the manner that i expected. >> reporter: armstrong is in talks to possibly repay some of the millions of dollars the u.s. postal service paid to sponsor his team. money the federal government is already considering suing to get back. betsy and her husband, frankie, were close armstrong friends for years before
a volley and government. the democrats typically say, well, government can do this or can't do that ask so it's really a series of arguments over the role of government and the second thing i'm curious to know about is how tough they were in a pretty partisan atmosphere. he has gotten tougher over the past couple of years with the opposition. how feist you he i he during the speech. >> things people have picked up in this run up to this inauguration is that the president four years ago in his speech came tout and he actually made a comment about how he was going to to bring an end to the petty grievances and false promises in washington. now four years later was that a false promise? >> yes. i mean, the president, i think, understandably confident and an historic election and all of that perhaps overstated what could be done. this is one place where he seen having come fiercely short and it's in bringing that sense to washington of bipartisanship and of working together and overcoming partisanship and his defenders and supporters will say oh, the republicans have been intransient and small
? >> that is government numbers used by republican members of the senate budget committee. it represents a whole new america. in fact, it represents a total reversal from the days of welfare reform in the mid-1990's. welfare has made an enormous come-back. there are no plans to rein it in. it is going to go up by $11 trillion. spending on welfare up $11 trillion in the next ten years. that's astronomical. >>steve: is a portion of it a sign of the times because the economy is so bad and it is hard for people to find work and they need assistance? >> absolutely not. there has been a shift in the eligibility for welfare during the obama years. more people are getting heating assistance, cell phones. you name it, you can get more of it in the obama years. point is there is no plan to rein this in. the president is adamantly opposed to any spending cuts or any reining in of these run-away programs. >>gretchen: one in six americans now on food stamps. i think one in four children, i've heard, are on food stamps. >> 19.9 million children are fed by the federal government. >>gretchen: you know what comes to
and impedes the federal government from doing its most important job, protecting its citizens when calamity strikes. on the surface, mr. speaker, new york city appears to be back up and running, but many people are still homeless anti-lack of long-term housing for which -- a problem for which we do not have an answer. the restoration of heat and power remains a challenge. there are increasing reports of people including small children getting sick from exposure to toxic mold, sewage, and other substances. entire neighbors are still dark and abandoned. many businesses in lower manhattan are still paying off loans from the world trade center 10 years ago. many of these businesses were already operating at thin margins. now they have been hit again. and without additional resources, many of them may close for good. the needs are great and yet the house has still failed to act. back in december the senate passed a $60.4 billion disaster aid package that tracked very closely to the administration's request which was based on conservative assessments of needs across the region. the house could ha
? >> everybody's guns are going to be taken away. >> that's right. the federal government is about to take your guns away. >> the federal government's about to take all your guns away. >> whose guns? >> everybody's guns. >> how many guns? >> all your guns. >> call the white house right now because if you don't -- >> here it comes. >> here it comes. paid for by americans against congress. >> good morning. welcome to "morning joe." it's funny, that ad was fake. we have a real one by the nra which we will show you coming up, which it should be fake. it's wednesday, january 16th. good to have everyone with us. with us on set, we have msnbc contributor mike barnicle. hello, mike. >> hello. >> you look nice today. >> thank you. >> donny, doesn't he put together well in. >> on the barnicle scale. >> he's adorable. chairman of deutsche incorporated, donny deutsch. >> but -- you know what? it's okay. i put a lot of effort into my has be haberdashery and still no comment. >> now ceo of melanie barnes solutions, melanie barnes, you worked in the white house very high up. huh. interesting. notice anything
and renewal this time around, but is the government broken? the whole system. and what can we do to fix it? people want washington and its politicians to work together. the politicians as yet have not been a i believe to figure out how to do that. but, you know, inaugural speeches can sometimes change the mood. you heard fdr, the only thing we have to fear. i remember when gerald ford said our long national nightmare is over. jack kennedy, ask not what you can do for your country. difference in how the nation feels about itself and about what's going on. i would say this. if there was a time when this country needed to hear a good speech and wanted to hear a good one, i think this would be the time. so let's hope we get a good one. >> of course, there was lincoln's second inaugural where he talked about the wounds of the nation. we know that the president has been working on this president for weeks and major garrett, our chief white house correspondent, is at the white house this morning with a little bit of insight on what we might hear today. >> well, good morning, scott. those closest
to allow the government to grind to a halt if, who do you think the american people would blame if that came to pass. >> i suspect the american people would blame all of washington for not being able to get its act together. >> greta: back in 2006 when president obama was then a senator he actually voted against raising the debt ceiling. so what has changed now? congressman jason chaffetz nice to see you. >> well, congress spending pushing and the president pushing for this? we have to stop the spending. like the alcoholic who won't give up his drink anymore, you have to slow this. >> greta: what president obama said today he's basically executing what you in congress are telling him to do. you authorize the spending and he's got to pay the bills. and so now you're saying he can't borrow the money. >> no, we've got to make sure we prioritize the payment of the 16.4 trillion dollars that this government owes, but we have to solve the problem. we don't need just the deal. we actually have to solve the problem and the way you solve that problem is it cut up the credit card and slow
